K'ala, Svaneti, July 28, 2007

Wrapping up Kvirikoba. More animal sacrifices (lots of those), picnics, feats of strength for young men involving a huge stone or bell to pick up and move... I would estimate that 1000 people came through for the event. TV cameras were there as well, and foreigners from: Armenia, Belgium, China, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Iran, Israel, Japan, Poland, Spain and the UK.

The top shot is a last look at Ushba above K'ala before clouds claimed it for the day.
